Obama orders CIA and Navy
SEALS to hunt down terrorists
who attacked US consulate in Libya

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

President Barack Obama has ordered the CIA and the Pentagon to hunt down the terrorists who attacked the US consulate in Libya. It's unclear what the president plans to do once the perpetrators of the September 11 assault in Benghazi are found, but he has mobilized the military's Joint Special Operations Command to help carry out the mission. JSOC and the CIA teamed up to send Navy SEAL commandos into Pakistan in 2011 for a raid that killed Osama bin Laden. The White House plans for retaliation come after it was revealed that security officials

Comments:
Isn't this something. They ignore warnings about the security and now he orders the CIA and SEALs to hunt down the "terrorists." It's just stunning to see the total incompetence of this guy.

The CIA and Seals should start with the State Department and work outwards from there. The terrorist hit men, while important, are by no means the only ones to blame for what happened in Benghazi. Everything indicates this atrocity was foreseeable, indeed foreseen. It was preventable. The hunt for the killers should not distract us from discovering the people in the U.S. government who were incompetent or asleep at the switch and who practically invited the disaster to happen.

That won't happen in time for his reelection. Like anything in life, you may only have 2 out of 3 things: This job can be done cheap (in intel lives & resources) and fast but it wouldn't be good (too many innocent people killed), expensive (in intel lives/resources but fast or cheap & accurate (in targetting the terrorists) but too slow to help his reelection. So, it is just for show only... like most of what Empty Suit does.

The intel people who can get it done because they already have boots on the ground are the Mossad but they are not going to do it because Americans are not Israelis and especially not with a mocking fool like Obama as POTUS.

He only knows 2 things to do with terrorists. Hit them with missiles from drones or let them return to their native country. Both will allow the cover-up to continue.

Hey there Zippy. I'm concerned that should the CIA and SEALS not come up with your terrorists before say Mitt Romney's inauguration you won't be given credit. So I suggest you announce a special speech from the White House, or Congress, or even during the Debate tomorrow night. And at that time take credit for ordering the hunt. You deserve it. You worked so hard to get Bin Laden so go ahead and take your bows (and we know you can bow) now.

No, now that the damage is done, he's going to put more brave men in danger. For absolutely nothing, nothing at all, but to save the face of Barack Obama.

Some time around the new moon of October, like around the 16th thru 19th, we will be treated to the videos of missiles launching and perhaps some helicopter assaults. 0bama will come on the air, chin up, telling us how he is again a hero and a national treasure.

Of course "priority one" was to make sure the video maker was arrested and then this come out? Three weeks to admit it was a terrorist attack? The directive should have been announced on September 13th at the latest! What a pathetic piece of trash. Only $1.4 BILLION a year to support this miserable POS.

#28, beat me to the punch. Now the admin is leaking details of the mission for their political gain, not even waiting until the hit is made. Say a prayer for the SEALs; they will need all the help they can get. And they need to hurry up so that there is some money in the defense budget before Obama's stupid sequestration policy goes into effect.

Did he consult with Congress? There is still a constitution. Two weeks time is enough to get a phone all or two through to the Intelligence Committee and the Armed Forces Committee.

That SOB. He and his regime screwed up by not protecting our ambassador and Seals and they end up dead. So, to cover his a** and to look like a tough leader, he is unnecessarily putting our CIA and Seal operatives at risk. If he had been doing his job, like read daily intelligence reports and taking 30 seconds out of his "busy" life and put some thought into what might happen in Islamic countries on 9/11 and after bragging about killing one of their heroes, such a mission wouldn't be necessary.

AP President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That would involve Britain and other nations increasing spending ten-fold on wind farms and other green

Fifty years later we are locked in a time of deep political division in America, frustrated by a Congress that can’t deal with a national immigration crisis, protect the right to vote or even pass a jobs bill to help the struggling economy.

The historical significance of this moment cannot be overstated. The presidents will come together as a powerful symbol of America’s ability, as demonstrated 50 years ago, to

In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods. The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller. Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools.

A tragic phenomenon has affected President Obama since he became President. The more radical his audience, the more outrageous his lies.

One need merely click this link from the Justice Department’s own website to see it is a lie.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been
